Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Garrison was working on the boat dock when he noticed and heard commotion on San Carlos Beach. A pedestrian notified Garrison of the situation, and called emergency medical services.

Garrison grabbed a first-aid kit from the station’s 47-foot Motor Lifeboat and ran to the beach.

Once on scene, Garrison found a 39-year-old female scuba diver unconscious on the beach. The diver had been pulled out of the water by fellow divers who had already commenced CPR. Garrison assumed CPR efforts and within a minute, the patient regained consciousness.
